Job Training & Employment Corporation
JTEC Mission: to help put people to work and assist employers in their human resources needs
The Job Training & Employment Corporation (JTEC) was established in 1985.
In 1999, under the guidance of the Cape & Islands Workforce Investment Board, JTEC, the Division of Career Services, Division of Unemployment Assistance (then called DET), the Department of Transitional Assistance and Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission entered into a collaborative partnership to provide labor exchange and related services to job seekers and employers. This collaboration is known as Career Opportunities and is part of the one-stop career system developed to provide an efficient delivery of services to job seeker and employer customers.
JTEC is a private nonprofit corporation that administers both federal and state workforce development grants and the lead agency and fiscal manager of Career Opportunities. These grants serve Barnstable, Duke's and Nantucket Counties and are accessible to job seekers and employers through Career Opportunities. Funding comes from the U.S. Department of Labor and the Massachusetts Department of Career Services. JTEC's employment and training programs serve people who have serious barriers to employment, are low income, and/or have lost their jobs as a result of business downsizing.
